OU produces more CEOs than any other UK university

A recent report recruitment company Forward Role shows that The Open University produces more CEOs and MDs than any other UK university, including universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, and the London School of Economics. The survey was done by looking at profiles on the LinkedIn social media site. Brian Johnson, a director at Forward Role, said "Those that apply themselves to develop outside of the regular path from college to university to job are the ones that see more success down the line. Companies who want really promising recruits should look for those who invest in their future with postgraduate degrees and online courses — the data shows it’ll pay off.”
